Gumbasia

I was making Playdoh from scratch which of course got me thinking about…Gumby! Hey, seemed logical at the time. Seeing as how Art Clokey passed away last month I thought I’d check to see if we had anything by him and came up with this abstract gem, Gumbasia (http://www.archive.org/details/Gumbasia). Apparently it was his first clay film, shot on a ping pong table in his dad’s garage. It got some attention from a producer, got him a short on Howdy Doody and led to the cultural icon and Eddie Murphy role model. Dig the drum sound track.

    What fun – very surreal & dark in an odd way…
